Welcome to the #dominoforever Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated jointly by the IBM & HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

For more information and upcoming events around #dominoforever, please visit our Destination Domino page.


In some cases, radio buttons should work when a document is in read mode.

Radio buttons only function when the document is in edit mode.  This means a user with Read access to the form can't use them.

For example, when a radio button is used to change the way a form displays, a user with read access can't change the display.

There should be a field property that allows the Designer to designate that a radio button will work in read mode.

The same argument could be used for checkbox and other field types as well.

    Does it have to be a radio button ? Would a hotspot link achieve the same purpose ? IMHO there are alternate UI element for that selection, but bigger issue is how to render the form change since it would require reloading the form (assuming this is a Notes client application) and you cannot set a flag within the document due to read only restriction.
